It seems that ecryptfs-util is filesystem specific, and that's not
a default filesystem in linux, so you should be safe in forcing the
rpm to install (--nodeps --force or something).

Another option may be to get the .src.rpm and build it from source, it
may detect that you don't have ecryptfs-util and not build in support
for it or something.
